….parsed by Andrew Mitrovica

Guest: 

Jonathan Kay is editor of the National Post’s comment pages,  and a National Post columnist.  He is the author of the book “Among the Truthers“.

People mentioned: 

Rex Murphy, Andrew Mitrovica, Neil Young, David Pogue, Doug Kelly

Topics discussed:

Has Rex Murphy been paid by Oil Sands companies? How much? How often? If he has done nothing wrong and has nothing to hide, why won’t he disclose this? Should The National Post run a disclosure with his columns? Might these payments influence his writing? Would it change the way readers think about him or his opinions? Is The National Post’s credibility at stake? Is The National Post itself editorially partnered with the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP)?
